Hello! My name is Jennifer Burns. I fifth grade at Carlock Elementary. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University and my Master’s degree from American College of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I began my career teaching in 3rd grade at Brigham Elementary and Cedar Ridge.  I became a fifth grade teacher at Carlock in 2016. 

I live in Normal with my husband and our two children.  We have been married over 24 years!  Our son and daughter are both in college. 

Some of my interests are camping, shopping, spending time with my family and friends, and scrap booking.  I absolutely LOVE Disney World and my favorite character is Tinker Bell.  My family and I try to go once a year to the most magical place on Earth!

I truly love teaching!  Every day brings about new challenges,  funny stories, great learning, and my favorite are those “light bulb moments” students have in the classroom.  I am looking forward to another wonderful year!
